New artwork in Ocean Center's ECHO Gallery
New artwork is on display in the Ocean Center's Ecological, Cultural, Heritage and Outdoor (ECHO) Gallery. The new artwork focuses on Volusia County’s abundance of breathtaking natural vistas, charming cultural sites and captivating recreational areas. Collectively, these places have been captured over time through thousands of eye-catching and often whimsically colorized, picture-perfect postcards. In the Ocean Center ECHO Gallery, gathered are just a few highlights of these historical mementos. The sampling features ECHO locales from all quadrants of the greater Volusia County region, from Ormond Beach to DeBary and from the St. Johns River to Ponce Inlet. Residents and visitors can view the artwork and tour the 5,000-square-foot gallery from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
